Assistant Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology
Dianne Glass, MD, PhD, is a gynecologist with advanced training in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. She treats women with a wide range of vaginal and pelvic conditions including pelvic organ prolapse, vaginal atrophy, urinary incontinence, urinary infections, and painful or irritative voiding disorders. Dr. Glass also is skilled in minimally invasive gynecologic treatments including vaginal, laparoscopic and robot-assisted surgeries.
Dr. Glass has engaged in research on urodynamic tests that assess how the bladder and urethra are performing their job of storing and releasing urine, and has made presentations on the role of preoperative urodynamics for women undergoing prolapse surgery. With a background in mechanical and biomedical engineering, she is also interested in mesh complications and the origins of pelvic organ prolapse. She has studied the use of intravesical botox, a procedure that involves an injection of Botulinum Type-A toxin into the muscles of the bladder wall, as a treatment for overactive bladder.
